Musical Analogy


To know how a music works over time
notice it aimed years later
somewhere else and far away
in a Target or Macy’s

where the song has you
under its fluorescence
tingeing the silence
as a woman sniffs diffusers
comparing the feeling
of lavender and matcha

and Howard in returns (his ears are huge)
takes the box of broken dinner plates
but fumbles the receipt
calling over the manager
for permission to override the system—

music works like that.
